New York City
Rihanna Fenty, The Bajan Pop Princess and Musical Icon bring the Internet in a frenzy after her appearance at her 5th annual Diamond Ball in New York City.
The "Rihanna Navy" went into a frenzy, in the last 24 hours, with rumors that The “Wild Thoughts” Singer, may be with-child. During an Interview with Essence Magazine on Thursday, September 12, to Commemorate her annual, Diamond Ball, Rihanna said “I am a black woman, I come from a black woman, who came from a black woman, who came from a black woman and I'm going to give birth to a black woman.” The latter statement caused online pandemonium from Rihanna superfans. The reactions varied from shock, to joyful celebrations, to others upset that they weren't the father of the baby. Others are excited for the "lucky child", who gets to have RiRi for a mom.
Rihanna, was asked by ESSENCE the importance of her standing up for black women? She responded, “ I mean, it doesn't even cross me in my mind like it is important for me to stand up for black women. I’m a black woman, I come from a black woman, who came from a black woman and I’m going to give birth to a black woman". “We are impeccable. We’re special and the world is just going to have to deal with that.”
Rihanna has been linked to billionaire boyfriend, Hassan Jameel, for a number of years now. However, he was coincidentally absent from Rihanna's Diamond Ball Event. Seth Myers hosted the Event, benefiting The Clara Lionel Foundation, which supports emergency programs around the world. In attendance were many celebrities, such as Cardi B, DJ Khaled and his pregnant wife, Meek Mill, Big Sean and many others. Pharrell also performed with Rihanna. Rihanna looked Fabulous in a black, Givenchy Creation, which accentuated her curves, further fueling The Rumors.
TMZ, however, claims that insiders close to Rihanna denied the pregnancy rumour, saying “sorry, she's not pregnant”.
